Most Americans aren't very keen on the idea of Sarah Palin as a U.S. senator (or as any other public official), according to a new HuffPost/YouGov poll.
The survey found that 49 percent don't want Palin to hold public office again and another 15 percent couldn't muster enough enthusiasm to be sure either way. Only 35 percent said yes to the idea of Palin back in government.
The former Alaska governor said Tuesday on "The Sean Hannity Show" that she has "considered" a 2014 run for the Senate seat currently held by Sen. Mark Begich (D-Alaska).
"I'm still waiting to see, you know, what the lineup will be and hoping that, there again, there will be some new blood, new energy -- not just kind of picking from the same old politicians in the state," Palin said on the show.
But the chair of Alaska's Republican Party has said that he has not spoken to Palin about a possible Senate run or any other topic.
